areto – the big bang of business intelligence!



areto consulting gmbh was founded in 2007 by Jan Strackbein. In 2019, Till Sander moved up to areto’s management team and has since then been focusing on the technological direction as well as leading an innovation team to develop new technologies. Together with the areto team, they put their heart and soul in and relish innovation for their customers – to create new value-adding solutions for business intelligence. The secret of success of Jan Strackbein and Till Sander as managing directors of areto lies in their diversity that results in an ideal complementation of their competencies and characters.

areto – the big bang of business intelligence.

Jan Strackbein

Jan Strackbein discovered his talent as a manager at an early age in the context of various charitable activities. Since then, he has consistently pursued this path – both professionally and privately: as head of a swimming department, responsible for the civil protection diving group of the DLRG Siegerland Wittgenstein, as an instructor for operational divers and last but not least as CEO of areto.

After completing his computer science studies in Siegen, he encountered the topic of business intelligence rather by chance during his first job. This ignited his interest. What fascinates him most about BI is not pure programming but the logical, constantly changing technical and business contexts. After several years with his first employer, in which he had taken over the team management at an early stage, it was time for new challenges and therefore, he co-founded areto.

If you ask his employees, above all, Jan Strackbein’s strengths lie in the organization, planning and keeping track of complex projects. His ability to motivate and inspire people proves to be a big plus.

Till Sander

Till Sander has almost 20 years of experience as a manager and solution architect for technology and consulting companies. Prior to areto, he worked as a Solution Manager at various consulting companies. As Chief Technical Officer (CTO), he brings his many years of expertise in the conception and development of business intelligence solutions to management. On this basis, he continues to drive forward the establishment and expansion of areto consulting gmbh, the evaluation of new software products and the further development of existing service offerings and consulting services. He proves his perseverance and his will to always achieve the optimum, not only in customer projects but also as a passionate racing cyclist.
